Tennessee Municipal Benchmarking Project Members Become Yellow Belts

Tennessee Municipal Benchmarking Project Members Become Yellow Belts

The Tennessee Municipal Benchmarking Project held its 2017 Annual Members meeting at the Patterson Park Community Center in Murfreesboro in the spring. New at the meeting this year, attendees completed the requirements for a Yellow Belt certification in the methods of Lean Six Sigma performance analytics and were presented with certificates.

MTAS consultants and city staff also led the attendees through a process where they review performance data talking about anomalies and any potential best practices. Also new at this year’s meeting, members were presented with a methodology based on the TMBP benchmarks for setting meaningful performance targets. TMBP is a service of the Municipal Technical Advisory Service to the cities of Tennessee. TMBP has been in existence since 2002 and today it has 16 member cities.
